About the Author
Evans has had a variety of jobs and spent several years helping to run a vehicle-repair workshop. There she tackled tax returns, the intricacies of which she believes were an excellent apprenticeship for the brain-teasing work necessary in writing a whodunnit.

Adam Ainsley had been attending a reunion at his old school. Griffin House is an imposing building dating back to the late 1550's and numbers some prestigious old-boys. Rafferty and his Sergeant the elegant Llewellyn set up shop in the Senior Common Room and begins the interviews. Eventually following the forensic evidence, and means and opportunity, Rafferty narrows his investigations down to a handful of suspects.
Meanwhile, Rafferty's Ma is organising her own family reunion and with the aid of the Internet has discovered many hitherto unheard of distant relatives - she has invited them all. Having a key to Rafferty's house she has commandeered Rafferty's two spare rooms and happily installed four of these relatives. Regrettably, being a busy woman she hasn't got around to telling Rafferty about this development in his living arrangements, thus he hasn't told his wife Abra. So with Superintendent Bradley on his case for a quick result owing to budget restrictions at work, and Abra on the war path at home Rafferty is as usual in it up to his neck.
As they pursue their investigations super-sportsman golden boy Adam begins to look a little tarnished. Rafferty has several theories but Llewellyn keeps pouring cold water on them.
This is another excellent entry in this marvellous series. The characters spring off the page. The dialogue is sparkling, there is great interplay between the two detectives, and the mystery intriguing to the end.
This is my first Geraldine Evans novel, but it won't be my last. The story is about a group of old classmates who all go back to their old school for a reunion but one of them ends up murdered, however before long another victim is added to the list.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book and felt that the police procedurals conducted within the story where very realistic. It felt like Joe Rafferty and his side-kick, Daf Llewellyn, where getting nowhere with their investigation, until all of a sudden the killer was revealed at the end. I certainly wouldn't have guessed who the killer was, although it was well explaned as to why the killer had conducted the murder after they were revealed. The only negative I can say is that the book was a little short, although while reading it I didn't feel like the author had rushed it or that anything was missing, but just shy of 200 pages is a little short in my opinion. Having said that, I will definitely read another of these Rafferty and Llewellyn mysteries.
